CLEARWATER, Florida — Whether it is cocaine, pills, or heroin, drug addiction is a major problem affecting every community in the country.
One of the biggest worldwide treatment clinics, Narconon, has its east coast headquarters in Clearwater. However, USF Psychiatrist Dr. Ryan Estevez says he believes the program is plain and simple quackery.
In addition to the east coast headquarters, Narconon has a new Suncoast Rehabilitation Center in Spring Hill.
While most rehab programs say a 20 percent success rate is fantastic, Narconon claims an amazing 76 percent success rate on its website.
Keith Werninck says the success rate that Narconon claims drew him in. He spent $28,000 to send his daughter, Kaysie, to a Narconon facility in Southern Oklahoma. While she was at facility, Kaysie Werninck became violently ill. Her father says,”They definitely did not take care of my daughter. Subsequently, my daughter died.”
